Greeley's water quality report is published each June, as required by federal law. It is an annual summary of the quality of drinking water treated and distributed by the City of Greeley. Our drinking water meets and exceeds all state and federal drinking water standards.

The City routinely monitors for a long list of potential contaminants in our drinking water.  This drinking water report pertains to monitoring conducted in 2017. The federal Safe Drinking Water Act establishes the water quality standards for public drinking water systems, including Greeley’s. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency prescribes regulations that limit the number of certain contaminants in drinking water provided by public water systems. Tap water meets more stringent and much more frequently monitored health standards than does bottled water.

Greeley’s water starts as pure Rocky Mountain snowmelt and the Water Department uses the latest technologies and most effective practices to further improve the quality of our drinking water. Two water treatment plants make the water safe to drink in Greeley. The Bellvue plant is located at the mouth of the Cache la Poudre River canyon and operates continually throughout the year. The Boyd Lake plant in Loveland is a seasonal, peaking plant that runs during the lawn-watering season. Both plants are frequently upgraded to keep Greeley’s tradition of high-quality drinking water.

BOTBTasteTestCMYKIn June of 2017, Greeley won the thirteenth annual “Best of the Best” Tap Water Taste Test  at the American Water Works Association (AWWA) annual conference. The event comprised of 34 regional winners from water-tasting competitions across North America. Greeley was also the winner of the People’s Choice Awards and the conference.  This was the first time in history that a municipality has won both awards in the same year. Greeley will be defending our titles at the annual conference and exposition later this month.

Greeley water customers receive a copy of the report brochure in their June water bills. Water customers who do not receive water bills and those who have water quality concerns or questions should call 970-350-9846.  The report and additional information are available on the City of Greeley’s web site at greeleygov.com/ccr.
